"Frankly speaking, Kazakov is one of the founding fathers of the DNR, a friend and assistant of Zakharchenko and the main ideologist of free Donbas from the beginning of the Russian Spring to the death of our Commander", - Prilepin casually denied the Kremlin's propaganda cliché that the Russian occupation of Donbas is "internal Ukrainian conflict" and "civil war".
